I was skiing at Arapahoe Basin on a powder day when I hit a jump off balance and came down on my back. This resulted in a T5 SCI. I quickly started working hard to recover and get back to the sports I love. Shortly after getting out of the hospital, High fives helped me get a Bowhead which changed my life. The bowhead allows me to explore nature and be fully independent doing the things I love. Since getting hurt, I have tried mountain biking, skiing and fly fishing and I plan on trying many more adaptive sports.
